MSNBC’s Donny Deutsch says President Donald Trump’s bizarre rant about toilets is a clear sign of mental decline.
The president complained Friday that new toilets must be flushed 10 to 15 times to clear the bowl, and “Morning Joe” panelists tried to make sense of his rant about bathroom facilities.
“That’s a lot of flushing,” said co-host Mika Brzezinski.
“We asked the White House if they’re having issues with the plumbing in the building,” said Associated Press reporter Jonathan Lemire. “Perhaps the president is harkening back to his time as a developer, and maybe at Trump Tower they have high-flush powerful toilets. But we’ll keep asking, we’ll pursue this — don’t you worry.”
“He had the type of toilets, I guess, where you could flush it, put a cinder block in it and it would break it up,” said co-host Joe Scarborough. “I think when he’s talking about flushing 10 or 15 times, this is one example of everything the president saying either a projection or a confession.”
“Oh my god,” Brzezinski said.
“He’s probably talking about Doral or Mar-A-Lago,” Deutsch said. “He’s cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs, that’s a crazy person. If you were going to get a therapist in to look at that drift and that mind, where he was going, that’s not a well man.”
“If you took that in a vacuum and looked that,” he added, “if that was Uncle Joe, I don’t mean Biden, it could be Uncle Louie, you’d call the internist and say, ‘should we get him checked,’ because that’s a mind that’s not right.”
GOP senators will ignore Bolton bombshell because they ‘just want this over’: ex-White House official
Appearing on CNN's "New Day," in the wake of the New York Times bombshell revelation that former national security adviser John Bolton book blows up the central impeachment defense put forward by Donald Trump's lawyers, former White House press secretary Joe Lockhart said it may not be enough to persuade Senate Republicans to allow witnesses.
According to the Times, "President Trump directly tied the withholding of almost $400 million in American security aid to investigations that he sought from Ukrainian officials, according to an unpublished manuscript of a book that John R. Bolton, Mr. Trump’s former national security adviser, wrote about his time in the White House. The firsthand account of the link between the aid and investigations, which is based on meetings and conversations Mr. Bolton had with Mr. Trump, undercuts a key component of the president’s impeachment defense."

How the world discovered the Nazi death camps
Images of what the Allies found when they liberated the first Nazi death camps towards the end of World War II brought the horror of the Holocaust to global attention.
Many of the ghastly pictures were at first held back from the broader public, partly out of concern for those with missing relatives.
The concentration and extermination camps were liberated one by one as the Allied armies advanced on Berlin in the final days of the 1939-1945 war.
The first was Majdanek in eastern Poland, which was freed on July 24, 1944 by the advancing Soviet Red Army.
